I reported in February that the Veterans Affairs Department planned to run a nationwide procurement for patient WiFi systems in all 152 of its hospitals later this year. Now it looks like this may occur one hospital at a time.
The Denver procurement covers the main hospital in that city and clinics in Alamosa, Aurora, Burlington, Jewell Clinic, La Junta, Lamar, Lakewood and Pueblo. VA has this on a real speedy track, with a contract start date of Aug. 1.
The purpose of patient WiFi systems is to provide Internet access for vets and their families while in the hospital. How wonderful -- I can read procurement notices while hospitalized.
